GET LAMP: Warren Robinett Interview


Published November 15, 2007


Interview with Warren Robinett for the GET LAMP documentary, conducted in San Jose on November 15, 2007. After multiple attempts to schedule an interview with Robinett, who travels frequently for his work, an opportunity came to interview him in California. Conducted at the home of Christian Wirth, Robinett answered a number of questions related to the creation of Adventure, an Atari 2600 game inspired by Crowther and Woods' Adventure. In creating the game, Robinett pioneered a number of important game mechanics, including a persistent world, off-screen action, a space larger than the screen display, and inventory. He also added a hidden message in the program, providing him the credit that Atari did not give its programmers as a matter of policy, and in doing so, added the first "Easter Egg".
